Lyric's surprise

I wish I had a picture of Lyric's face when we walked into the cottage
and everyone yelled "surprise!"
It was priceless!

Thanks to all of you who helped pull this off (and to those of you
who would have if you lived closer ;-)

Lauren, Lyric and Niki

I love this picture of Jill and Gracie!

Lyric and Lauren bug.

The perfect Lyric shirt... Happy 13th Birthday, Lyric!!!

Oh, Happy Adoption Day!

Complete in our hearts a long time ago.
Finalized on paper, July 21, 2010.
It was a very fun experience.
Our judge was wonderful. Our whole family got to stand up with her where she sits and she gave M&M stuffed animals, all of the kids official certificates of brotherhood and sisterhood, and let them all bang the gavel to make it official.
A good day.

Summer photos

Can anyone say, "Swim diaper, please?"
I think half of Sylvan lake is in his diaper.
I'm pleased to announce that Moses is now potty trained.
I guess wearing a diaper like this would inspire anyone.

This summer has been amazing.
Looking back at last summer, I
can appreciate how tired and worn out we really were. We were
feeling so thankful but were truly spent.

I just wanted to share some pictures from the
cottage. We also got to spend time with my sister in law, Shelly, who was here from TX.
And our beautiful neice, Amber.
More pics to come.

Looking forward to tomorrow at court too!
